Hmmm....I am looking for a once-and-for-all fix on this.

I have read the archives and no one has completely fixed this!

I run mailman 2.0.5 and use the newsTOmail setup quite extensively.
We processed a tremendous amount of mail yesterday w/o any errors...until 
this AM that is...

Jul 07 08:17:03 2001 (3303) Could not acquire qrunner lock

so, I turned on lock debugging:
Jul 07 08:17:02 2001 (3286) dogs-behavior.lock unlocked
Jul 07 08:17:03 2001 (3286) dogs-behavior.lock laying claim
Jul 07 08:17:03 2001 (3286) dogs-behavior.lock got the lock
Jul 07 08:17:03 2001 (3286) dogs-behavior.lock unlocked

..I dont see what qrunner is complaining about!

I have installed with all the defaults. crontab entries are full default 
with gate_news polling every 5mins and qrunner each 1min.

I tried a new install with the latest work-in-progress and that made this 
issue tremendously worse!

Mail seems to be delivered fine and nothing is left in ~/qfiles - so I 
think I am correct on that.

Help? - I ran clean all day yesterday and processed over 3500 postings, but 
today (early saturday) when it rather slow....I get errors!
